The research deals with the importance of the role of mentioning consequences in the directive discourse, and the directive effectiveness of this mechanism, upon which the orators of the Umayyad authority relied with all their ability and their expressive freedom in forming a rhetorical strategy that achieves their various political goals. It is one of the mechanisms that is not subject to specific controls and customs. Its forms are the use of the conditional method, which is an effective rhetorical method that is very influential in terms of its deep structure, which basically represents the meanings of command and prohibition, as it makes the creation of the context keep pace with the results of the actions that preachers employ of their own free will in a way that suits their future convictions.

Among the forms of this mechanism is also the mention of examples, the setting of evidence, the reporting of news, stories, and narrations that resemble the rhetorical event, which is led to take lessons from it, and to know the results of actions and their consequences in an effective and unauthorized manner, as well as forms of praising or vilifying the qualities of the addressees
